Disability Action Hall retreat

 The Disability Action Hall's annual retreat for self-advocates, allies and representatives from agencies that provide support and services to people with developmental disabilities was held on March 4-6 at Camp Horizon - just west of Calgary.

The weather was amazing - a beautiful weekend.

Sleep was in short supply, especially given the late-night rowdy energy of some of the participants... (not to mention some rather horrifying karaoke performances [he said with a big grin]).

The Action Hall remains one of my most favourite activist groups to work with. In spite of the incredibly hard experiences most of these people have gone through, they remain a very fun and hopeful bunch to be around.
